Find Your Orator Type
To see what kind of word user you are, ask yourself about yourself.
(Click here for an explanation of my methods.)
Tendencies: Are you happiest speaking in front of a group or one on one, with individuals? How much do you want to be the center of attention? As a general rule, the larger the group, the more you want to be an entertainer, and the more flamboyant and fancy your tools can be.
Motives: What’s your chief reason for communicating with people? What result do you want your words to achieve? To bring people closer together? Strengthen your own relationships? Make people feel better? Help them learn, or to get better at their work? Make them do your bidding? Get them motivated to do what you want?
